As you may know back here on Mexico on the 80's R2D2 was called Ar-tu-ri-to (Little Arthur);

There's a water heater and it seems to be available since the 80's and it's called Arturito, because of the charismatic robot.

That the uprighted millenium falcon appears as a building in Blade runner

The "I didn't know that till just now" thread - Page 6 Falcon1-mike

with an added red outline to show it in the dark Blade runner cityscape.

The "I didn't know that till just now" thread - Page 6 Falcon_2-pod

and here is a pic of the model used

The "I didn't know that till just now" thread - Page 6 Br_model_city_2

apparently as tribute the guys at ILM added the blade runner police cars to the speeder chase scenes on coruscant in episode II

Here's something, you may not know, or may not have noticed. Glasslite only released 8 figures from the original line (Droids excluded) The cardback however shows nine. You could spend ages picking faults. The additional none released character is Ben Kenobi, the figures themselves are Kenner with Kenner weapons, the Stormtrooper is pictured but the Snowtrooper was released, and my personal favourite is Luke, it was the farmboy Luke that was released but the picture shows Bespin Luke and to top it off he's holding a farmboy Luke saber.

I didn't know, until recently, that the Vehicle Maintenance Energizer actually appears in the background of Star Wars. I had assumed that it was a Kenner creation along with the mini-rigs.

One thing I didn't know till recently not really toy related but I didn't know billy dee Williams son stared as one of the skiff guards in ROTJ and that he also did a stand in part for his dad it was him not his father hanging off the skiff dress as lando. I found this out in one of my resent star wars insider mags.

I didn't know that the TW ree-yees came with pink molded arms and grey molded legs. For years I always thought this figure was poorly designed as the pink painted hands always rubbed off on the HK version.

Club Obi Wan in Templer of Doom.

Being a fan of both film series, I always liked the Star Wars links found in Indiana Jones movies.


No one has mentioned Oola's boob. Not that is news to any male SW fan. Very Happy Oops lowered the tone.

I didn't know about Indy's plane, but.. but.. but.. there's a 3 missing.



Anthony Daniels (C3PO) is a guard in Attack of the clones scene with Anakin & Zam Wessel chase.

The "I didn't know that till just now" thread - Page 6 2407.full

Another guard in the same scene was Amhed Best (Jar Jar Binks).

They did, in the first Saga collection (Blue Cards), Daniels is called Lt. Danni Faytonni (a hash of Daniels and Tony) the other I will not utter here Very Happy 

Also, Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) plays the Imperial Officer manhandling Leia in the Bespin Escape scene

The "I didn't know that till just now" thread - Page 6 Medium10

Also the late and great conceptual artist for Star Wars, the man who created the general visual look of the films and who's paintings sold the idea to 20th Century Fox, Ralph McQuarrie made a Cameo in ESB as General Pharl McQuarrie (he was also made into a figure along with many of his concept characters in the 30th Anniversary Collection)

Someone posted this on facebook and I just had to post it here on TIG, couldn't think where and then I remembered this thread, which is due a revival and plus I genuinely didn't know this until know!

The picture on the left is from an episode of Doctor Who called The Tenth Planet from 1966, the picture on the right needs no explanation.

I just love the the fact that they used the exact same costume and it must have been sat in some store room for nearly 15 years, and yet it's absolutely perfect.

I took a close look now, Bossk s jumpsuit is not just based upon the Dr Who suit, it IS the exact sane suit.

I didn't get that first. Funny fact indeed.

Also used for the Cantina Dude then, I suppose.

I wish I could remember what movie it was I saw this suit in not long ago. I ment to bump this thread when I noticed it but forgot and just remembered now. Trying to remember all the movies I've watched in the last few months.
